    TKR 5 months post-op LTKR and still having unpredictable ups & downs.

    music lover, I am also at 5 mo and I keep thinking I should be better too. But it is just a long process, and everytime I feel pretty good I have to over do it(ODI club). Right now my new knee is okay, but I pulled a muscle in my calf and I am hobbling again. One of our advisors will be along...

    @PolarBear60, Hi Jean, its been awhile since I have posted anything. I know you had your surgery close to mine and I'm wondering how you have been doing. It has been 5 months and I was hoping at 3 I would feel close to back to normal, but it is not the case. My tight band stiffness is about...

Now I just take the Naproxen and an occactional Tylenol PM. I was back to work this AM and PT after work. I was...
